Re: Importing a 1991 BMW convertible.....

My E30 in Ireland has only 27,000 miles on it. Its a real garage queen and only gets out on dry sunny days (yesterday ...

Coffee culture in Spain.

In Ireland we have a great coffee culture and some really good coffee shops. As an observation I note a lack of good coffee shops where you can have a "real latte" etc etc & not a coffee with foam on top 8) . I must admit that I can remember a time in Ireland whenn all coffee was from a jar (pre cel...

Re: Sachs motorbikes in Andalucia ?

Thanks spanish lad. I just wondered if these are available. They are very funky but "quiet" so I wont be like a spotty youth with a race pipe on a scooter :mrgreen: . I'm a biker here in Dublin & just need 2 wheels to get coffee etc when in the sun.

Re: Funeral insurance

I'm curious here........... As an insurance broker (Ireland) I get people in their 60's looking for life assurance all the time. Why not look for a small level of life assurance (€7,000) to cover the funeral ?

Re: Price rise for hold luggage

Aer Lingus now check the weight of hand luggage (max 6 kg) at check in desks in Malaga. As I only ever have passport & credit card wallet :lol: it's not an issue. But the funny part is that after being checked for weight.... you can then go to duty free and buy 10 bottles of champagne at 1kg each ! :?
